Previous research has shown that after training simple discriminations (A1+/A2-, B1+/B2-), bringing these tasks under conditional control (J1-A1, J2-A2) leads to transfer of discriminative control (J1+/J2-) and to generalized matching on the basis of same discriminative functions (e.g. J1-B1, J2-B2). The same occurs when conditional discriminations are trained (D1-E1, D2-E2; F1-G1, F2-G2). When the subjects are then trained to demonstrate correct relations (D1-E1, D2-E2) when given X1 and to… CONTINUE READING
